Man arrested for child porn escapes house arrest, remains outstanding

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Oct 17, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police are requesting the public's assistance in locating 52-year-old William Thompson of Las Vegas.

On Sept. 11, Thompson failed to appear in Justice Court at a scheduled hearing and is currently wanted on outstanding felony arrest warrants, stemming from a sexual assault investigation.

In November 2012, detectives received information concerning a local photographer who was reportedly taking photographs and recording videos of a juvenile in sexually explicit situations.

As a result of the investigation, detectives arrested Thompson. He operated Storybook Studios in the 3300 block of West Craig Road.

Thompson has also been linked with additional cases, including several outside of the Continental United States, and this investigation is currently under review for possible federal prosecution.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Thompson is urged to call police at (702) 668-7001 or Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
